CHICAGO (AP) - The expected dangerously hot weather in and around Chicago has officials warning people to drink lots of water, avoid going outside for long stretches and find a cool spot to ride out the heat.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for the area from Friday morning until at least Saturday evening. Temperatures are expected to hover in the mid-90s during and day - with humidity that will make it feel like the temperature is as high as 105 to 112 degrees.

To protect the elderly and others from the heat, dozens of cooling centers have been opened in and around the city. Residents are also asked to check on elderly neighbors and people with medical problems and to make sure that pets aren’t left unattended.
